Great book

Great listen, however would have been better with a PDF of the various recipes detailed in the book.

This is a great guide to home-based spirituality!

This was exactly the gentle nudge I needed to overcome burnout and gently slip back onto my path in the craft! Inclusive, adaptable, and charming! Great narrator too!

A great book for witches inclined to domesticity

I love this book! I read it in eBook format from my library, then bought in in hardback and the Audible book. That's how much I liked it. The House Witch shows how the environment of a witch's home can be a touch point for spiritual practice. With history of sacred practices centered around the home, an index of beneficial household spirits, and recipes for magical homegoods; the reader is instructed on how to create a sacred space to nuture the soul and hose around us. Gabra Zackman has a soothing, precise cadence that makes Arin Murphy-Hiscock's material shine. I've now purchased all of the author's titles that are available on Audible. I highly recommend this to anyone seeking the sacred at home. Personal note to Audible: Please commission Gabra Zackman to record Murphy-Hiscock's other books! I'd love to listen to "Protection Spells" and "Out of the Broom Closet." I'd purchase them in a heart-beat.

Excellent

The narrator could not be more perfect for this subject matter. Pleasant to listen to, informative content and it makes one wish every book on this topic would be read by this narrator. Well written, well done all around.

Calming and Enlightening

This book has a lot I'd information that would be helpful to see in print but helped me get in the right mindset to be productive and organize my home to honor myself and create a harmonious space for my family.

Indispensable Knowledge + Householder Resource

This book is a gift of knowledge, especially in this day and age. With the generation separations of family life and the digitization of the world, traditions and storytelling can be obscured and forgotten. This book serves as a resource guide to reconnect us with wise ways and traditions that may (re)reveal themselves to our consciousness.

meh.

Nothing particularly groundbreaking, all seemed fairly common sense or the same you'd find a million other places.

Doesn't work as well as an audio book

I think this book would be better to have as a material thing. There are lots of spells and cooking and ingredients that read allowed aren't going to sink in so well. It didn't keep my attention as some other books have but I wouldn't say it's terrible either. I'm glad I read it once but I'm unlikely to read it again.
